Heads Up If Going Through Illinois

Our wonderful new Governor yesterday raised the State Fuel Tax by double. Went from 19 cents to 38 cents per gallon. Bought gas across the Mississippi River in Missouri this morning for 29 cents a gallon less than Illinois stations. The young lady behind the counter said they have been selling gas like crazy......never been so busy.............wonder why?
Won't even mention the other crazy stuff he's been pulling.
Seriously considering moving to Missouri

I don't like high taxes either, but Il hasn't raised the gas tax since 1990...29 years. I spend the summers in Il with my kids.

Supposedly for "road improvement" But you can bet it will be spent in the Chicago area. Misappropriation of tax money in Illinois is as common as hot dogs on the 4th of July.
Fuel Tax in Missouri is now 21 cents per gallon cheaper than IL but yet they have better roads.
The new Gov. also doubled the yearly vehicle registration fees. He is soon to enact a $15.00 per hr min. wage. He doesn't realize that people on Social Security, fixed incomes don't get adjustments to meet the increase in taxes and cost of living.
He is killing manufacturing and small business. We already had a major employer here close their plant that had been here for over 50 years and built a huge brand new plant in Missouri 18 miles away.
He legalized full term abortions, legalized marijuana, made us a "Sanctuary State", Cook County Jail (Chicago) is now a voting place............inmates included, doubled fuel tax, doubled vehicle registration fee.
Anybody need a "slightly used" Gov?

Sounds very similar to California. Hmmm, I wonder what they have in common.

Sorry.....but you're wrong. The 1975 partial birth abortion ban was repealed by the "Reproductive Health Act"

Eating popcorn watching kids with $20 000 or more toys quarreling about a 19 cents increase over at least three bucks..

Our new governor says we need to raise the gas tax by 45 cents a gallon over 3 years to fix the roads. Lucky for us it has to be put to a vote she can't just say it starts today. And polling shows that will never happen, over 70% said find another way to fix the roads
